REPORT OF THE 

COHASSET DRUG EDUCATION COMMITTEE 

(C.D.E.C.) 

During the past year the Cohasset Drug Education Committee has been ac- 
tively working to find the correct approach to best deal with current drug 
problems in Cohasset. 

A Counselling Drop-in Center, The City, has been established at 109 
Ripley Road. The Center was organized to offer Cohasset youth a place to 
talk out their problems and become involved in various youth activities. Two 
dances were organized during 1972. The first, raised funds to aid an accident 
victim here in Cohasset and the second, raised money for photographic equip- 
ment for the City. There was also a rock-band concert in July under the direc- 
tion of the staff at the City. This was offered free to the residents of Cohasset. 

During April and May, there were Personal Growth seminars conducted at 
the City. These seminars guided by the City's director gave the youth at the 
City the chance to learn more about themselves and their problems. In July 
members of the City joined together and painted the interior of the South 
Shore Mental Health Center in Quincy. The money raised on this project was 
used to purchase equipment for hobbies and crafts. A continuation of the 
summer program was the formation of a clam-seeding project. With the aid 
of Ellery Sidney, Shellfish Constable, clams were moved from various 
beaches in Cohasset and planted in Little Harbor. This was done to speed 
growth of Little Harbor's depleted clam beds. 

Prior to establishing the City in its present Ripley Road location, meetings 
were held with directors of the Community Center in the hopes of using their 
barn as a location for the drop-in center. Meetings were also held with the 
Community Center's Director to organize a cooperative effort in dealing with 
youth problems in the town. Police Chief Feola, also met with the Committee 
at various times during the year to exchange ideas and advice. 



79 



Another program conducted by C.D.E.C. was the initiation of a series of 
social seminars between youth and adults. These seminars are being held to 
help educate more town residents to current problems and situations which 
contribute to alienation between parents and children. 

We were fortunate to have with us during the year, Reverend Roy 
Cederholm. Mr. Cederholm is a teacher in the Cohasset High School and 
also assistant at St. Stephens Church. His advice and participation have been 
of great assistance to the committee. Also, representing the Advisory Board 
at our meetings were Joseph Buckley and Arnold Weeks. Their interest and 
time was greatly appreciated by C.D.E.C. 

The Committee has explored the results of its efforts over the past year. A 
re-evaluation meeting was held in September with representatives from all 
ages and areas of the town. It was determined that there was a lessening of 
the crisis nature in drug usage and the emergence of a more controlled situa- 
tion. It was also determined that the City has fulfilled a definite need. 

C.D.E.C. feels progress has been made and we plan to work closely with 
existing groups within the town to coordinate our efforts and expand this 
program.

COHASSET HOUSING AUTHORITY 

The year 1972 has been one of progesss and fulfillment for this Authority 
beginning with the election of (Mrs.) Yolanda Baccari as our new Secretary 
and culminating with a low bid for the construction of our housing by Fred 
Findlen and Sons, Inc. We expect to be under construction shortly after the 
first of the year once the usual details of a contract award are approved by the 
D.C.A. 

Our program for 1973 will include the careful development of the construc- 
tion of our 64 units of housing anticipating an early 1974 occupancy. Con- 
current with these actions will be the processing of applications for residency 
in accordance with the regulations of the D.C.A.

assistance since I assumed this Office on August 10, 1972. 

Respectfully yours, 

James A. Litchfield

REPORT ON THE COUNCIL ON AGING 

Our report represents little change from our activities of last year. The 
Cohasset Council on Aging continues to meet regullarly on the second Mon- 
day of each month at 3:30 p.m. in the living room of the Unitarian Parish 
House. Council meetings are concerned with the planning and coordination 
of services for the elder citizens of our community. Council meetings are 
always open to the public. 

We communicate information regarding legislative developments, and 
social, educational and recreational programs for senior citizens through the 
publication of a monthly newsletter, "Senior Vista." Our mailings are 
presently reaching a little over two hundred addresses and seem to be well 
received. Anyone wishing to receive "Vista" may have his name added to the 
mailing list by calling the Unitarian Parish House (383-1 105) weekday mor- 
nings. 

While in general our efforts are directed at providing services to the elderly 
of the town through other agencies, the Council does allocate a direct subsidy 
for two luncheons and two bus trips for the senior citizens of Cohasset during 
the year. We feel that these activities aid us in making contact with the older 
people of the town as well as providing some needed entertainment and 
fellowship for our senior citizens.

REPORT OF THE GOVERNMENT ISLAND COMMITTEE 

This Committee, pursuant to the vote and appropriation at the March 
meeting of 1972, has contracted for the repairs to the wall at the Border 
Street entrance. This work is expected to be completed during the winter of 



82 



1973. Only part of the appropriation was expended. The Committee wishes to 
pursue further development of the accessways and parking facilities as well as 
opening up the whole area as a recreational facility for the benefit of the 
Town. A site such as this should not be permitted to lie fallow any longer and 
should be opened up to achieve full utilization of this beautiful and scenic 
location. We hope the Town will support any move in this direction.

REPORT OF THE PLANNING BOARD OF COHASSET 

The Planning Board has continued to pursue a role of active planning for 
the Town of Cohasset. In the early part of 1972, the Rules and Regulations of 
the Planning Board were revised, and shall be invoked after a Public Hearing 
in the near future. Additional work has involved a review of the proposed 
Cluster Zoning By-Law which was rejected by the Town Meeting in 1972, 
Multi-Family Housing, and technical base studies regarding the creation of a 
new Base Map for purposes of locating new subdivisions, natural features, 
and zoning. Further, assistance to the Selectmen's Office and to the Conser- 
vation Commission in obtaining Federal grants for Flood Plain deliniation 
was provided by the Planning Board. Work shall progress in these areas in 
order that entire recommendations for zoning changes may be presented in 
the 1974 Town Meeting Warrant, rather than sporadic zoning changes, as 
would otherwise be the case. It is therefore anticipated that major changes 
will be recommended in the 1974 Town Meeting, predicated upon a sound 
technical base of studies and mapping.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

The year 1972 brought several changes in the Office of Selectmen. 

First the Board acting as Tree and Park Commissioners employed Mr. 
Bradley G. Martin as Superintendent of the Tree and Park Department. 

Because of personal business, Mr. Maurice (Bud) O'Donnell resigned as 
our building inspector and zoning officer. We were sorry to lose ''Bud" as he 
had set up the office and was very efficient. We appointed Mr. James A. 
Litchfield to take "Bud's" place and he is doing a good job. 

Later we lost our very valuable Secretary to the Board, Mrs. Eileen 
Jacome who resigned for personal reasons. We have now employed Mrs. 
Marguerite "Peggy" Ramsay. 

83 



During the summer months we were able to hire six young people through 
the Quincy Youth Corps, a Federal Funded Program, at no cost to the Town. 

We also hired two men through the E.E.A., another Federal Funded 
Program, for the Tree and Park Dept., again at no cost to the Town. 

We also applied for and received Federal money to repair the damage caus- 
ed by the storm of February 1972. 

We wish to express our appreciation to all the citizens who have served on 
the various committee's this year.

OF THE HIGHWAY SURVEYOR 

Submitted herewith is the report of the Highway Surveyor for the year en- 
ding December 31, 1972. 

This year the Highway Department installed 31 Standard Catch Basins 
and laid 2530' of 10"-12"-15" pipe, 6300' od Mix in Place was laid on various 
streets and private-ways throughout the Town. 

3100' of Bituminous Asphalt Type I was put down and 12,000 gallons of 
liquid asphalt was used in sealing different roads. 

In the Spring catch-basins were cleaned, sand and debris was swept up. 
Street lines were painted and the problem of maintaining street signs and 
markers was continued. 

The drainage on Redgate Lane will be completed this year and the road 
resurfaced. Two thirds was completed in 1972. 

In the future Pond Street from Cushing Road to Bancroft Road will be 
drained also Linden Drive. 

Chapter 90 funds were applied for the year. Where the funds will be used is 
not known at this time. During the winter and early Spring a problem has 
developed at Cat Dam. The Tidal Gate no longer holds the water in the 
lagoon. This was a Chapter 90 project in 1957. Maybe the Funds can be used 
there. If not, an Article for $20,000 will be in the Warrant. 



84 



Elm Street should be completed, it's been a long hard pull to get the money 
together. 

This year there will be an article in the Warrant to stop the discharging of 
water onto Public Highways. Cellar drains, Sump Pumps and cesspools 
create a problem each year in cold weather. 

I wish to thank the Town Officials, the citizens of Cohasset, and the men of 
the Highway Department who have assisted me throughout the year. 

Louis C. Bailey, Jr. 
Highway Surveyor 

SEALER OF WEIGHTS AND MEASURES 

I hereby submit my report as Sealer of Weights and Measures for the year 
ending December 31, 1972. 

A total of one hundred and thirty-eight (138) weighing and-or measuring 
devices have been tested and sealed. Two weighing devices were condemned. 

The amount of One Hundred and Nine-Two Dollars and Seventy-Five 
Cents ($192.75) for sealing fees was collected and paid to the Town 
Treasurer, Cohasset, Massachusetts. 

Respectfully submitted, 

BENJAMIN F. Curley, JR.

REPORT OF THE 
BOARD OF SEWER COMMISSIONERS 1972 

This has been a busy year for the Board of Sewer Commissioners and the 
Sewer Department, which operated with a minimum of personnel. 

The Board has been greatly satisfied with the construction of Phase H by 
DiMascio Bros., Inc. Contractors of Quincy. Construction began in mid 
March and was completed ahead of schedule (with the exception of some 
clean up work to be done in the Spring) allowing time for home owners to 
connect their property to the system before the winter weather. 

In addition to the High School complex there are now three other town 
owned buildings, twelve business establishments and sixty homes connected 

85 



to the system. This additional flow to the treatment plant has increased its ef- 
ficiency and is operating well. As the remaining connections are made, the 
plant will reach its designed capacity and any future expansion of the system 
will also necessitate a program of plant expansion. 

Our engineering firm of Fay, Spofford & Thorndike is completing the 
Town wide study and master plan, as well as preliminary studies of the 3-A 
business area. Veteran Housing area. Hillside and School area as voted un- 
der Article 23 of the 1972 Town Meeting. With this information in hand the 
Board will make recommendations at the next Town Meeting for further con- 
struction phases. 

Our expression of Thanks is extended to all Town Officials for their 
cooperation throughout the year, also to our part-time Superintendent and 
our Treatment Plant Operator for their interest and untiring efforts. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Board of Sewer Commissioners

REPORT OF THE 
BOARD OF WATER COMMISSIONERS 1972 

The Board of Water Commissioners have continued their efforts this year 
to expedite the construction of new water supply facilities, for which funds 
were authorized at the Annual Town Meeting, March 1972. On April 14 a 
grant of $994,000 was approved by the Department of Housing & Urban 
Development for the project. Some objection arose as to the location of the 
treatment plant causing a delay in advertising for bids for construction. It 
appears that construction should begin by Summer 1973. 

Experiencing one of the wettest years on record our distribution figures 
were some eleven million gallons below last year. 

The moderate growth of the Town continues showing 28 new accounts be- 
ing activated, only one hundred twenty-five feet of new 8" main was installed 
by a private developer. 

With Phase 11 of the sewer system being constructed, Water Department 
personnel renewed and-or repaired water mains and services as necessary un- 
der all effected streets. 

Our program of hydrant updating has continued, as well as the program of 
meter maintenance and conversion to outside visual reading equipment. 

86 



The financial condition of the Department is sound and continues to 
operate within its revenue. 

The Board would like to take this opportunity to thank all Town Officials, 
Department Heads and Committees for their cooperation and to the 
Superintendent and personnel of the Water Department for their continued 
loyal support. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Board of Water Commissioners

REPORT OF THE CONSERVATION COMMISSION 

The duties of the Conservation Commission were considerably enlarged by 
the Wetlands Protection Act Chapter 131 - Section 40 which puts the respon- 
sibility for holding hearings and writing the orders of condition on Conserva- 
tion Commissions. Although no hearings took place in 1972, at year's end 
one notice of intent had been filed for a hearing in January, and several more 
were expected momentarily. 

The Commission is pleased to acknowledge with thanks the donation by 
Nathan Bates to the town of approximately five acres of land at the junction 
of Herring Brook and Bound Brook, in the Lily Pond Watershed Protection 
area. About half of it is upland. The Commission is interested in acquiring 
other such pieces of land for conservation purposes, since they need no extra 
town services and add nothing to school enrollment. 

One event of considerable importance to the future of the Town was the 
hearing by the State Department of Natural Resources, preliminary to an 
order protecting our coastal wetlands under Ch. 131, Sec. 105. This act 
recognizes that coastal wetlands are a natural resource that should be 
protected in order to promote public safety, health and welfare. The order 
had not transmitted before the end of the year. 

The report of the Consultant, Ken Schult, was submitted to us and to the 
Selectmen. It detailed the needs of the town Trees and Parks Department, 
pointing out the great amount of work to be done. It has given the incoming 
Superintendent of Trees and Parks a valuable tool for planning. 

With a view toward improving Straits Pond, at the suggestion of the 
Conservation Commission, a group of High School Students has been study- 
ing the pond. It is hoped that their fieldwork, which will be made available to 
the town, will form the base for a set of suggestions for improving the pond's 

87 



ecology next year. The Commission would like to express its appreciation to 
these students and their teachers for their cooperation. 

The Commission is working with the Planning Board to broaden and im- 
prove the town's Flood Plain Zoning by-law. This is important for several 
reasons. It will protect future citizens from buying houses on land subject to 
flooding. It will permit those citizens whose houses lie in a designated zone to 
buy Federally-sponsored flood insurance. It will help to maintain the ground 
water supply to our town wells. And it will tend to preserve our lowlands and 
wetlands for conservation, recreation and wildlife. 

John Chase resigned during the year and Thomas Duggan was appointed 
to fill the vacancy. The Commission usually meets on the first Wednesday of 
each month. Meetings are open and all citizens are welcome. Several citizens 
have been attending the meetings regularly, and the Commission would like 
to thank them for their interest, help and advice.

ANNUAL REPORT - HARBOR DEPARTMENT 

I hereby submit the annual report of the Harbor Department for the year 
1972. It is my belief that the harbor is operating at peak capacity and as ef- 
ficiently as possible. The Harbor Department had a very serious handicap 
this past year due to loss of the Yacht Club mooring barge. This resulted in, 
boat owners waiting to have their moorings set or moved, to become very 
irritated. There is money being appropriated this year for a town mooring 
barge which will alleviate this problem, and in time, make sure it doesn't exist 
again. 

The twenty-four foot patrol boat and the V H F radio donated to the town 
by interested and concerned citizens were greatly appreciated by the depart- 
ment. They made it possible for more efficient patrolling, search and rescue, 
and communications which were badly needed but not available in years past. 

There just seems to be no end to persons wanting to moor a boat in the har- 
bor and has resulted in a back log of over 250 applications on file. The last 
boat to be issued a mooring berth made out the application on July 1, 1970. 
Present boat owners are urged not to increase the size of their present boat 



88 



without contacting the department and making out the proper forms or they 
could put themselves in the predicament of not having a berth to moor their 
boat. You just can't put a 30 foot boat on a 25 foot mooring! The boats are 
moored that tight and I will not allow this to happen and have one boat 
damage another. All boatowners are urged to read the by-laws and mooring 
regulations pertaining to the harbor so that when this department has to call a 
shot they will understand it is going to. I feel the citizens of the town make 
these by-laws, rules and regulations and pay me for enforcing them and this is 
the way it is going to be. 

The program of putting flood lights around the harbor has been completed 
and has resulted in less vandalism and theft than in previous years. 

The Corps of Army Engineers has been petitioned to make a survey of the 
dredged areas of the harbor and channel for maintenance dredging. At the 
present time there are several areas that need this badly. 

I feel that the harbor is one of the biggest assets of the town. The persons 
using it are well aware that it is going to take the co-operation of all concern- 
ed so that it can be utilized for the best interest of all. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Harry H. Ritter 

Harbormaster 



REPORT OF THE VETERANS MEMORIAL COMMITTEE 

We have completed another year as guardians of the Veterans Memorial. 
Again this year the committee feels it has done its job in keeping the 
memorial a "Show Place" paying tribute to our veterans. The cooperation of 
so many interested citizens, department heads, and committee members 
make the memorial upkeep possible. 

Annual plantings again this year were donated by the Council of Garden 
Clubs. The assistance given us by the Wire and Water Departments was in- 
valuable in our efforts against vandals. This year vandals took four flags and 
two sets of pole hardware. In a separate incident vandals took two bronze 
numerals from the stone face of the memorial. New numerals have been ob- 
tained and will be in place for Memorial Day. 

The committee operated within a budget of $150, through the Selectmens 
Office. We made recommendations on the expenditure of $126. the 
Selectmen duplicated one purchase at a cost much higher than the committee 
purchased, accounting for an over spending of the budget. 



89 



This chairman would like to take this opportunity to thank each committee 
member, town official, and town employee as well as the many interested 
citizens who helped in keeping the memorial a living and lasting tribute to the 
veterans of Cohasset who gave their service, and those who gave their service 
and their lives for this nation. 

Respectfully submitted.

TOTAL CIRCULATION 86,537 

PER CAPITA CIRCULATION -- 12.4 

NEW REGISTRATIONS -- 373 adults, 226 children 

New registrations are 25% higher than last year in both groups. The total, 599, 
is about 9% of the town's population. Total number of active registrations is 
difficult to determine. 

PERSONALIZED SERVICE: much library use is self-service: a person looks in 
the card catalog or on the shelf and does not ask for help. Much of the time such 
a person finds what he wants. But too often he does not, and goes away dissat- 
isfied. One of the advantages of a small Hbrary is personal service. We invite 
library users to ask for assistance in using the catalogs and other reference 
sources, in locating materials on the shelves, in obtaining material not presently 
owned by the library, and in reserving material which is out when the user asks 
for it. To assist in following through on such requests, the hbrary has a "Request" 
card which users may fill out when they want a book or information which is 
not immediately available. The library will call the user when the material 
becomes available. 

In 1972, 2,416 of these written requests were filled (less than 3% of total 
loans). 

1,700 different people - almost 25% of Cohasset's population -- submitted 
these written requests (averaging 1.4 per person). 

1,421 different book titles or bits of information were requested. The bal- 
ance, 995 (41%), were repeated requests for material in great demand, usually 
current popular books. Interlibrary loan through the Eastern Regional Library 
System filled 76 of these requests (32%), in some cases by photocopy of infor- 
mation. The balance were filled by library-owned materials, in most cases new 
purchases, including replacement of missing books and additional copies of popu- 
lar books. 

OPERATION OVERDUE: Concern over the rising cost of books and the con- 
tinuing struggle to recover overdue books resulted in a major effort. In April, an 
Amnesty Week was announced by fliers and news items, urging the fine-free 
return of overdue materials. About 18% of overdue materials were returned. 

In June, 371 families were sent letters on 965 items long overdue. After two 
months, about 8% of the material had been returned and about 7% paid for. 
Some people were offended by the letter, which we tried to make as pohte and 
appealing as possible. We apologize if we antagonized anyone. We welcome 
suggestions for improving control over town-owned property without discourag- 
ing maximum free use. Our losses are no greater than in other libraries. But the 
cost of replacement reduces funds for new and-varied materials for which the 
people of Cohasset make above average demands of their library. 



91 



SURVEY OF STUDENT USE OF ADULT MATERIALS: For two weeks in 
February, every person who borrowed adult materials was asked which of the 
material, if any, was for the use of persons in high school or younger. Of total 
loans of adult materials, 15% was for use of school-age persons (Use not neces-j 
sarily school-related, however.) By category of material, student use was: 

19% of nonfiction books 

7% of fiction books 

40% of periodicals 

13% of records 

The most revealing finding here is that, contrary to widespread assumptions, 
out-of-school adults, not students, are the major users of adult materials. (Keep 
in mind that the younger age group uses the children's collection, which repre- 
sents about 31% of total library circulation.) 

STUDENT OPINION SURVEY: In June an opinion survey on the pubhc Hbrary 
was given to students in grades 7-12. About 70% of students responded. Among 
these respondents it appears that nearly all use the public hbrary, 80% using it at 
least monthly. One question asked if the student found it necessary to use the 
Hingham Public Library (which charges a $10 fee of nonresidents): 53% of 
10th graders, 68% of 1 1th graders and 72% of 12th graders said yes. More than 
one-third of the respondents judged the Cohasset library record collection to be 
poor (they are right!). The most decisive vote was on the question, "Are there 
services or materials at the public Ubrary which you feel are unnecessary in view 
of the high school library?" 84% said no and 16% said yes. Of those who said 
yes, none suggested what could be reduced, all but three reported using the 
public library at least monthly, and all but three asked for expanded hours and/or 
said they have to use the Hingham library. A fuller summary of the survey may 
be seen at the library. 

SUMMER READING PROGRAM: Children were again encouraged to explore 
recreational reading during the summer. Reading Certificates were awarded to 
100 children who read at least ten books. A paperback book was given to each 
of the 65 people who read at least twenty books. Eighteen of the participants 
read thirty or more books. The "champion" reader, a third grader, read 85 
books! Second and third graders made up nearly half the 100 participants. 
Participation was 25% higher than last year. 

FRIENDS OF THE COHASSET LIBRARY, INC.: This organization of over 100 
members continues to benefit the community through the library. Volunteers 
gave 1 ,368 hours of regular scheduled time assisting at library routines. In addi- 
tion, Friends have arranged exhibits, sponsored film and other programs for 
children and for adults, and made weekly book deliveries and visits to two nurs- 
ing homes. This year a second donation of $500 in expensive, notable books was 
made by the Friends. A printed list of the total $1,000 in gift books in 1971-72 

92 



is available at the library. The Friends also purchased a toy box and toys for the 
pre-school area. 

GARDEN CLUBS ASSIST LIBRARY: A committee of members from Cohasset's 
garden clubs reviewed the gardening and landscape collections and recommended 
withdrawals and additions. This expert advice was much appreciated. The gar- 
gen clubs also donated $100 worth of new books in these subject areas. 

YOUTH CORPS EMPLOYEE: The Quincy Neighborhood Youth Corps, with 
federal funds, placed a Cohasset student in the Hbrary during the summer for 
about 100 hours of work. The town will also be reimbursed for supervisory time 
in the amount of $105. 

ART BOOKS MOVED: In a continuing effort to find room in our crowded li- 
brary, 29 shelves of books on the arts and crafts were moved from the lower 
central stacks to the newly named Art & Music Room (the "new" multipurpose 
room). The use of this attractive room for meetings, group activities and pro- 
grams-is seriously threatened by the probability that more books must be 
housed there in the near future.

REPORT OF THE PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 

The Personnel Committee has met regularly on the second Tuesday of each 
month. During this past year we have had at least two additional meetings 
monthly and have met more frequently since September, sometimes as many 
as three times weekly. We have tried to meet with each employee body as well 
as responsible Boards and Department heads to discover problem areas and 
to suggest solutions. Our biggest responsibility lies in the area of Collective 
Bargaining. This year, as in the past, the Personnel Committee was appointed 
to be the Collective Bargaining Agent for the Town. This responsibility is 
strongly governed by State statutes but leaves the real decision making up to 
Bargaining Agents, and local governing bodies (where financing is con- 
cerned). In our case the governing body is the Annual Town Meeting. As you 
may have noticed last year, there was some disagreement, as witnessed at 
Town Meting, as to who the Town's Bargaining Agent was - the Personnel 
Committee or the Advisory Committee. I believe this year that problem has 
been ironed out satisfactorily to all concerned. We do feel it improper for 
other bodies in Town to interfere with proper procedures for Collective 
Bargaining. 

As to our recommendations to this year's Town Meeting, we are again 
striving for a reduction in the work week for our firefighters. As you well 
know, our firefighters now work a 56 hour week, regardless of whether or not 
same of that time is "spent sleeping". It is unthinkable that we should subject 



96 



our firefighters to hours that we ourselves would not work. The average work 
week for local firefighters is between 42 and 48 hours. By your votes at least 
year's Town Meeting and on the referendum in November you indicated that 
you were not willing to reduce the work week to 42 hours. Your Personnel 
Committee has heard your voice. We also heard, however, that you were not 
opposed to a 48 hour week, but you were not given that choice. To the 
"sleeping" charge, I can only offer this: these men are ready, asleep or awake 
to protect your life and property, (in that order), and I can say that only 6 
hours of their 14 hour night is spent in restless sleep. The majority of house 
fires in this Town occur at night. The men never know when they will have to 
"roll out" to a "working" fire or assist someone in need of their services. 
They stand on guard to serve YOU. 

We have sought to reward our longtime Police officers with longevity pay 
and our recently appointed Police officers with an Educational Incentive 
Plan. Articles covering these two subjects will appear on the Warrant. 

The cost of living increase to be granted is 3.7% for 1973 based on the 1972 
wages and an additional 1.9% to be granted from January 1 to June 30, 1974 
also based on the 1972 wages. This is lower than many towns are granting, 
but we feel it fair to taxpayer and employee alike. We based our figure on the 
cost of living index for the Boston area for the year ending October 31, 1972. 
This annual figure has been arrived at using the same parameters for several 
years. 

I wish to thank publicly those who have served this Committee so faithful- 
ly, even when times were rough. My special thanks go to James Gillespie who 
resigned recently for business reasons. We were pleased to receive into our 
group a respected member of our Community, Rev. Frank B. Chatterton, to 
replace Jim. Thanks to you all.

REPORT OF THE RECREATION COMMISSION 

Having completed it's sixteenth year of operation the recreation commis- 
sion feels that there is an even greater need for programs geared to people of 
all ages, as well as an increased need for facilities. 

Seventy-two saw well over 300 5-12 year olds attending the programs at 
Beechwood and Barnes Fields. This necessitated hiring two additional 
counselors bringing the total to five counselors plus two Youth Core 

97 



Workers. Interest was held by the weekly themes and presentation of prizes 
for costume and make-up. Trips to the Music Circus, Edaville, Salem 
Willows, Friday beach days and a visit by the traveling zoo highlighted the 
program. 

Night basketball at the Osgood School was interspaced with softball and 
open to girls and boys thirteen to nineteen years. 

The most popular program tennis instruction, was on a limited basis and 
open to all ages. A fee was charged as the budget could not cover the expense. 
The commission hopes to obtain enough money in this years budget to have 
lights installed at all courts and to hire an instructor. 

A band concert on the common by the U.S. Navy Band was well attended 
and more such programs are planned for the coming year. 

The summer of '73 should see the installation of the playground equipment 
at Beechwood Field. The equipment is here and similar equipment has been 
ordered for Barnes and Milliken Fields. 

Thanks go to the; Cohasset Firefighters for co-sponsoring a trip to a Red 
Sox game. We thank Hector Pelletier for the police escort. To the highway 
dept. for sub-grading the area designated for the new equipment in 
Beechwood. To Boston Gas for sponsoring a tour of Boston Harbor last 
summer enjoyed by the participants in the summer program. 

Winter activities are not as plentiful but we do light two ponds for skating. 
Future plans are to light a section of Lily Pond barring any restrictions plac- 
ed on reservoirs. We would also like to initiate a winter program in the school 
gyms but this rests on the budget. Plans are to work with Hingham not only 
during the summer, as we do on the Hull Street playground, but to join forces 
and provide more winter recreation. 

Our efforts in the renovation of the football field and the installation of the 
practice field saw some progress. The new field is almost complete and 
hopefully the grass will take hold in the spring. Thanks go to Norbert Rear- 
don HI, who was instrumental in getting the Marines from So. Weymouth to 
donate their time and heavy equipment in leveling the field. It is hoped work 
will continue on Milliken Field as soon as possible in the spring or early 
summer so as to have the field ready for the opening of school in September 
73.

REPORT OF THE 
SCHOOL FACILITIES COMMITTEE FOR 1972 

During 1972 the School Facilities Committee continued its effort, in con- 
cert with the School Committee, to solve the space problem at the elementary 
level. . .a space problem which involves not only enrollment projections, but 
also the need to accommodate modern educational methods. 

The Committee explored many alternatives, including the extended school 
year and pre-engineered, (portable) classrooms. After a year's study, the Ex- 
tended School Study Committee, consisting of eight subcommittees, issued a 
report and a summary of its report which did not recommend the extended 
school year as an economy measure. (A copy of that report is available in the 
town library.) Pre-engineered classrooms were found to be: not re-imbursable 
by the state School Building Assistance Bureau lacking in the flexibility of 
use desired by the School Committee; and subject to costly maintenance and 
deterioration problems. 

A third alternative, architect-designed renovations and additions to both 
the Osgood and the Deer Hill schools at a cost of $1,360,000, was defeated at 
the Town Meeting of March, 1972. 

However, $5,000 was appropriated to continue investigation and study. A 
special Town Meeting in June appropriated $25,000 for preliminary plans for 
a new school. 

The committee held 12 regular meetings, seven joint meetings with the 
School Committee, interviewed 11 architects, and conducted field trips to 
view 14 schools from Lawrence, Mass. to Providence, R. I. On the basis of 
the schools themselves, the school building experience of the architects, 
testimony of the teachers and community members, the supervision of con- 
struction by the architects, cost per square foot, and other factors, the choice 
was narrowed. The final and unanimous choice of the committee was Earl R. 
Flansburgh and Associates, of Cambridge. 

After a preliminary meeting with both the School Committee and the 
School Facilities Committee, the architect proceeded to study several alter- 
nate plans suggested by Superintendent of Schools, James F. Gray. The 
results of these studies were presented to both committees. 

In late December the School Committee selected a proposal for a new 
facility to be built as part of a campus-type development incorporating the 
Deer Hill School. The new building plus the Deer Hill School would have 
facilities for 925 students; tentative plans were to leave the Kindergarten and 
1st Grade at the Joseph Osgood School for the immediate future. The School 
Committee and the School Facilities Committee agreed that, because of the 



99 



importance of this project, it should not be jeopardized in any way by rushing 
the plans for a March Town Meeting deadline. They anticipate presenting the 
plans for Town Meeting approval at a special meeting later in the spring.

REPORT TO THE BOARD OF TREE AND PARK COMMISSIONERS 

Considerable progress was made during 1972. Well ovr 100 tree stumps 
were removed along with dead and dying trees. These were all chipped up, the 
holes filled with loam and seeded. 

New trees were planted in many areas throughout the Town in protected 
areas so that they would not be damaged by cars or plows or damaged by the 
salting of the roads. 

Due to excessive rainfall spraying was difficult but we still managed to 
keep good control over all insects. 

A new practice field was installed adjacent to Milliken Field and we were 
able to increase the area over the original plan, without an increase in cost. 
We hope to refurbish Milliken Field this spring and to install an underground 
sprinkler system with the assistance of the Water Department. 

Also due to the heavy rainfall we were kept exceptionally busy all summer 
with out mowing of the various parks and playgrounds and the grounds at the 
three schools. 

We were fortunate, with your help, to have been able to purchase a new 
truck, brush chipper and a new mowing machine in 1972. With the use of this 
new equipment and with the additional planting of more new trees 
throughout the Town we feel we can keep Cohasset more beautiful in the 
years to come. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Bradley G. Martin 
Tree and Park Superintendent.

Submitted herewith is the report of the South Shore Mosquito Control 
Project's activities for the December 1, 1971 to November 30, 1972. 

The project is a year round cooperative effort embracing the City of Quin- 
cy and Towns of Braintree, Cohasset, Duxbury, Hingham, Hull, Marshfield, 
Norwell, Scituate and Weymouth, covering a total area of 172 square miles, 
servicing a population in excess of 230,000. 

The Project is authorized and acts under the provisions of Massachusetts 
General Laws, Chapter 252, Section 59, mosquito control provisions, and 
Chapter 1 12, Acts of 1931, pertaining to maintenance of ditches put on the 
salt marshes under original act. 

The Project continued to base its program on a recommended three phase 
approach to community mosquito control: 

A. Source Reduction, eliminating or reducing of water breeding sites of the 
mosquitoes 

B. Reduction at the Source, larvaciding at the water breeding sites whereby 
a very minimum amount of insecticide can effect the greatest amount of 
kill of mosquito larvae and pupae. 

101 



C. Reduction of adults, by an atomized space and residual spray in an area 
usually between the nearest accessible site of suspected mosquito 
emergence and the area of a noted large mosquito buildup. 

Giving priority of operation in the order above. 

Source Reduction: 

All mosquitoes need a water source to breed. However, water alone does 
not constitute a mosquito condition. The requisites of stagnation, 
brackishness, pollution and level fluctuation are also necessary to some ex- 
tent. Eliminate one, two, or all of these conditions, termed "source reduction 
or water management" and mosquitoes would also be eliminated to the same 
degree. 

The project operates 2 crawler tractor backhoe trenchers especially 
adapted to work upon coastal salt marshes; this is where the greater amount 
of its mosquito problems would be. 

Along these lines of source reduction this project accomplished the follow- 
ing in this past year: 

13,263 cu. ft. new ditch excavated 

319,015 cu. ft. ditches reclaimed 

9,080 feet of brook and stream cleaning 

77,284 sq. ft. of brushing to facilitate access to work and treat these 

breeding areas. 

Reduction at the Source: 

Mosquitoes, while in their period of water development (larvae and pupas) 
are in their most vulnerable state for they are in large concentrations and 
restricted to small areas, thus allowing very minute amounts of insecticide to 
render the greatest level of mosquito fatality, the same time this limits to a 
great extent the harmful effects on other aquatic and marsh life with such low 
dosages. 

Several methods are employed by the project to mosquito larvacide; air- 
craft, both helicopter and fixed wing making low volume application to the 
large woodland swamps, power sprayer tanks, with hose, in areas accessible 
from the roads, back pack sprayers to the smaller and inaccessible areas, also 
power sprayers mounted on Jeep model vehicles are used to treat roadside 
and storm drain catch basins. 

All areas larvacided are either actually breading mosquitoes at the time of 
application or are known to be sure breeding areas at future dates. 

102 



Accomplished by this project by reducing at the source in this past year, 2,- 
880 acres were larvacided by helicopter, 9,060 acres were larvacided by fixed 
wing aircraft, 3,198 gallons of insecticide were used to larvacide 3,198 acres 
by various means of ground equipment, 2,586 gallons of insecticide were used 
to larvacide 27,411 basins. 1,357 hours were spent pre- and post-checking 
these many breeding sites. 

Reduction of Adult Mosquitoes: 

By the use of power mist blowers, atomized particles of insecticide were 
dispersed in noted areas of large mosquito infestations. Contact with this in- 
secticidal spray by the Mosquito while in flight or as it rests in an area treated 
with this insecticide considerably reduced its numbers. 

In many areas inaccessible by vehicles, a power pack back mist blower was 
used. 9,487 gallons of insecticide were applied to approximately 9,487 acres 
by both truck mounted and back pack mist blowers. 

The degree of success in both programs "Reduction of the Source" and 
"Reduction at the Source" can be measured by the steady reduction of the 
needs for adulticiding. This adulticide reduction now being realized in this 
project, however, certain weather and other conditions can reverse such a 
trend as did this past season. 

The spring of 1972 gave this area one of its wettest seasons in several years 
and continued so into mid-summer. The month of June having the record of 
third highest in precipitation on record. All this wet weather not only in- 
creased mosquito breeding sites but caused many incidents of rehatch in area 
previously treated due to wash away and water level fluctuation. 

Calls for mosquito service did increase over previous years necessitating an 
increase in adulticiding operation at the expense of a reduction in source 
reduction work. 

The check-out of each and every call received into projects office still 
remains the projects policy. 

The insecticides used in this project's operation in 1972 were: 

1. Abate, the main mosquito larvacide formulated at between .031 to .046 
pound of actual material to acre. 

2. Baytex (Fenthion) as a larvacide in storm drain catchbasins and in 
breeding water having a high organic level at formulation rates at .015 to 
.062 pounds of actual material to acre. 



103 



3. Malathion, the main mosquito adulticiding material formulated at 
between 0.2 to 0.5 pounds of actual material to acre. 

These insecticides are all registered for mosquito control use in 
Massachusetts. The label recommendations formulates rates and limits in 
application are implicitly abided by and more often than less at the minimum 
levels. 

Eastern Equine Encephalitis: 

Although this year there were no reported incidents of Eastern Equine 
Encephalitis in man or horses this dred mosquito born virus remains a threat, 
for this year as in others the virus has been detected in the wild birds of the 
area and these are believed to be the natural reservoir of this virus. 

Dog Heart Worm has been reported as on the increase in the past two 
years. The mosquito is suspected of being the main vector for this fatal dog 
disease. 

For these reasons the mosquito remains a health menance in this area. 

The project wishes to acknowledge all assistance received from the officials 
and departments of the communities it serves and give notioe that shall as 
always remain ready with its personnel and equipment to continue to serve 
these wherever and whenever it is called upon.

October 1 enrollment figures provide a means for comparing the school sys- 
tem's enrollment at a comparable time during any school year, but they do not 
provide an accurate description of the overall enrollment pattern. A more pre- 
cise representation can be obtained by using a statistic called the Average Daily 
Membership (ADM). This is obtained for any given year by adding the aggregate 
number of days of attendance of all students to the aggregate number of days 
of absence of all students and dividing that sum by the total number of days that 



118 



school was in session. The ADM for the two preceding school years are provided 
in Table 3. These figures include both resident and non-resident (METCO) stu- 
dents.

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE - 1972 

1972 has been a most eventful year for the Cohasset School System and 
perhaps the busiest and most diffucult year ever for the School Committee. 
Our educational problems are many and there are no easy solutions. On the 
other hand, the School Committee is optomistic and feels that good progress 
is being made in many areas. 

There isn't space to mention all the happenings to the school system during 
the past year but some will be highlighted. 

Early in 1972, Mr. Nelson J. Megna, Superintendent of Schools, submitted 
his resignation effective on July 1st. At the time he resigned, Mr. Megna had 
completed three years in office. He accomplished a great deal within the 
Cohasset Schools; and the Committee wishes him well in his new endeavor as 
Superintendent of Schools in Waterville, Maine. 

By early March the School Committee was involved in a comprehenvise 
search for a new Superintendent. Over 200 inquiries and applications were 
received from all over the country. Many applicants were interviewed and 
school systems visited. Literally, hundreds of man hours went into the search 
for Mr. Megna's successor. Finally, the School Committee offered the 
superintendency to Mr. James F. Gray after interviewing him twice in 
Cohasset, and after members of the Committee spent a full day visiting his 
schools in Glen Ridge, New Jersey. Mr. Gray was the Committee's one and 
only choice for Superintendent. He accepted the position and took over the 
reins at the beginning of July. 

Mr. Gray comes to Cohasset with an extensive background in education as 
a teacher and principal in Newton, Director of Laboratory Schools, Universi- 
ty of Pittsburgh, Superintendent of Schools in Lincoln, Mass., Assistant 
Superintendent in Cleveland Heights, Supervisory Principal in Scarsdale and 
finally five years as Superintendent in Glen Ridge, New Jersey. 

Mr. Gray has a wide reputation as an innovator and is deeply committed to 
educational change though not change for change' sake; he recognizes that 
some students perform best within a more traditional educational structure 
while others require different alternatives. 

Last Spring the Cohasset High School was evaluated by a team from the 
New England Association of Schools and Colleges. Cohasset was voted con- 
tinued membership and accreditation for a period of five years. The evalua- 
tion team had many good things to say about the High School but felt that 
more should be done to strengthen offerings in business education and in- 
dustrial arts. Many of their suggestions have been implemented, some will be, 
and others the Committee felt didn't have merit. 



121 



Copies of the complete report are available in the schools and library for 
anyone who would like to read it. 

In June 1972, under a State grant, an Evaluation of the Cohasset Special 
Education Program was completed. The evaluation, as conducted by 
Heuristics, Inc. of Dedham, Mass., used the new State regulations governing 
special education as the basic criteria and included other existing evaluative 
measures. 

The report praised many aspects of the program but raised more questions 
and suggested numerous ways to improve the program, the Committee ex- 
pects to implement many of the recommendations through the 1972-1973 
budget. Copies of the report are available in the schools and Public Library. 



Teachers negotiations were carried on through the winter and spring 
culminating in a new two-year contract that took effect on September 1, 
1972. The teacher salary scale for the 1973-1974 school year will be '^adjusted 
by the percentage increase change in the U.S. Department of Labor Con- 
sumer Price Index for Urban Wage Erners and Clerical Workers for Boston 
all items (1967-100) for the period January 1, 1972 to January 1, 1973 
(January 1972 index figure 124.9) plus additional one percent (1%). In no 
event shall the increase be less than four and one-half percent (4^2%) nor 
more than five and one-half percent (5'/2%)." 

The School committee feels that the contract is a good one and will help 
recruit and retain first rate teaching personnel for the school system. 
Teachers have become more interested in school policy issues than ever 
before and the Committee hopes that this interest will always be directed in 
constructive channels. 

There have been a great many major personnel changes in the last several 
months. Mr. John Shaw, Curriculum Coordinator and Bill McCallum, 
Director of Pupil Personnel Services resigned, both, after many years of 
dedicated service to Cohasset. To replace them, Kenneth Grew was offered 
and accepted in early September the position of Assistant Superintendent of 
Schools. He has taught in the Sharon Public Schools and administered a 
cooperative education program at Northeastern University. In his few 
months on the job, he has proved to be a person of enormous energy. 

At the end of the 1971-1972 school year, Mrs. Katherine Mulcahy resigned 
as Principal of the Joseph Osgood School after more than thirty years in the 
system. Both the Superintendent and the School Committee tried without 
success to change her mind. Finally, her resignation was accepted with real 
regret. Mrs. Mulcahy was a great educator, and Cohasset has been fortunate 
to have her services for so many years. The Committee wishes her many hap- 
py years in retirement. 

122 



Mr. John Creamer has been transferred from his position as Principal at 
Deer Hill to replace Mrs. Mulcahy at Joseph Osgood. This is a challenging 
position with many innovative educational programs to be introduced. The 
Committee believes that Mr. Creamer is well equipped to do a superb job at 
Joseph Osgood in the years ahead. 

Late in August, Mr. Donald Ford was offered and accepted the position as 
Principal of the Deer Hill School. He had previous teaching experience in 
Lincoln and was teaching and directing an educational program at Skidmore 
College just prior to coming to Cohasset. 

Sumner Smith retired from the School Committee after many years of out- 
standing service. The Town owes him a real debt of gratitude. 

There are so many ideas and programs such as the Alternative School at 
the High School, non-voting student council representation to the School 
Committee, the intramural program at the high school, the tentative aban- 
donment of X period that the Committee invites you to visit the schools and 
look into these programs in detail. 

On many fronts Superintendent Gray has' moved without delay and made 
good progress: 

1. He supervised the successful alterations carried out at Joseph 
Osgood and Deer Hill Schools made necessary by the crowded conditions 
resulting from the return of the Kindergarten from the First Parish and the 
need for better use of available space. Plans are moving ahead for a more 
permanent solution to the space problem with new facilities. 

2. Working with the School Committee and other groups, guidelines have 
been written and accepted for establishing Cohasset's Goals and Objec- 
tives. 

3. Traditional School Committee policy is being reviewed, considered, and 
finally the Committee will have a written codified book of policies. A 
new, improved, goal-oriented approach to Teacher Evaluation is one ex- 
ample of what will be included in the Committee's policy notebook. 

4. A whole new approach to budgeting is being instituted. It's called 
Program Budgeting. Each school budget and each individual program is 
considered by itself rather than looking at the totals of a line item budget. 
This budget changeover is taking a lot of time, but the School Committee 
feels that the program budget will lead to a much greater understanding 
of and accountability for the school system's costs and operations. 

The Committee is very pleased with the outstanding work that Superinten- 
dent Gray has been able to accomplish in such a short time on the job. The 
future won't be easy because change and innovation always bring pain during 



123 



the period of adjustment. There is much to be done. There will be many con- 
troversial issues. In Mr. Gray the Town is blessed with a first-class educator 
to run the school system, but he'll need everyone's help and support, teachers, 
townspeople, and School Committee if he's to be successful.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

This report is divided into two sections; Section I contains projected plans 
for the schools in the year ahead and Section II contains the statistical data 
for 1972, data which if read without comparison to previous year and without 
proper reflection are actually meaningless; i.e. a cursory glance at enrollment 
figures means nothing, but when one compares the figures and realizes that 
for over six years we have been squeezing more students into Osgood and 
Deer Hill than the recommended capacity; we have hired specialized per- 
sonnel to perform a service for which there is no room for them to operate 
effectively; then these statistics take on meaning and require that priority 
judgments be made within the community. 

- Section I - Cohasset in the Years Ahead - 

"We cannot tolerate another generation that knows so much about 
preserving and destroying life, but so little about enhancing it. We 
cannot permit our children to come into their maturity as masters 
of the atom and of the gene, but ignorant and barbarous about the 
ways of the human mind and heart." - Alvin C. Eurich -. 

If the Cohasset schools are to build upon the excellent foundation laid 
through the sixties, then we must begin the arduous task of personalizing our 
schools; we must seek better ways to help each student to develop those skills 
and strategies necessary for handling, assessing, organizing and applying in- 
formation; develop their ability to cope with the environment and society; 
gain free access to effective knowledge and, probably most important of all, 
assist them to rediscover what makes us human. 

Some aspects of our present educational situations suggest we consciously 
or unconsciously tend to adopt a philosophy of ignoring questions and 
problems as long as possible in the hope that they will not become too 
troublesome. I contend that to continue on this path can only lead to the early 
death of a virorous community and school system. The seeking of solutions to 



124 



problems can at times be unnerving, particularly vexing, and traumatic; but 
on the other hand complacency or vilent thrashing about does little to help in 
the slow and steady uplifting of our schools. We must have the built-in 
mechanism to seek new and better ways, the right to fail and be able to learn 
from our failures, to build in continuing self-renewal devices, re-train our 
teachers and administrators for we are requiring skills and knowledges that 
they were not prepared for. The community has a basic responsibility to 
assist in a planned and orderly changeover. Such fundamental changes in in- 
struction requires new curricula, new tests for assessing students' progress, 
new in-service training courses for faculty and administration, and new 
organizational patterns. 

We should get off the drawing board as soon as possible those plans that 
will: 

1. Establish a skilled team to identify children's different patterns and 
modes of learning; detect early these individuals with possible potentials 
for learning problems, and provide the necessary alternatives before a 
student's learning pattern becomes short-circuited. The challenge of 
identification of these potential problems in the early primary years is 
one we must ixieet. 

2. Re-design our K-12 graded system to comply with the philosophy of con- 
tinuous progress: A system that will allow each child to work at all times 
and the instructional level which best fits his educational foundation and 
metal maturity. Basic to this form or organization is a change in the K-12 
grade structure, curriculum, and the traditional self-contrained 
classroom. Such a plan will require definitely closer ties and working 
relationships between parents, teachers and students. 

3. Reverse the formula for budget requests. The long-held theory and prac- 
tice that 'Time + more $ - a better program or more and more of the 
same yields better schools" is not a sound one. The current major 
emphasis of focusing on "inputs" should be shifted to a thorough 
analysis of the "outputs", the consideration of the growth students make 
in acquiring attitudes, values, skills and knowledge - in essence a focusing 
on the performance of the learner. To not be concerned with the product 
of education and what the individual is becoming is not a prudent utiliza- 
tion of the community school tax dollar. 

4. Seek out and clarify the community's aims, goals and expectations for its 
youth. The schools must reflect what the community chooses to support 
in the classroom. The community must make itself accountable for the 
changes needed in its schools. The task of helping Cohasset youth to dis- 
cover for themselves a moral, aesthetic, intellectual and scientific 
heritage with the reasons to make it a part of their life style, is a deeply 

125 



involved responsibility of the community; the schools can act as only one 
of the many agencies to bring this about. 

5. Specifically, lead to the personalization of instruction this means in- 
struction geared to the distinctive attributes, needs and understandings of 
the individual student, arrived at by a thorough and repetetive assessment 
of the student's needs. The learning tasks are indentified by the learner or 
teacher or by both. 

6. Establish teaching teams - a group of 4-6 teachers each with a special 
skill, assigned to a specific group of students. A team situation provides 
greater opportunity for teacher self-analysis; closer unity within the 
faculty; and a sincere sharing of personal and professional strengths, in- 
structional skills, teaching responsibilities and the opportunity to reduce 
the duplication of teaching efforts. For the student, the team should 
provide a maximum flexibility in grouping for learning, the opportunity 
to teach and learn from each other, the opportunity for students to ad- 
vance at their own rate. Teaching teams greatly enhance the opportunity 
for outside specialists from the community to make an effective con- 
tribution to the student's school experiences. 

7. Establish at the High School level a public service learning program with 
credit. Too often work study programs are designed to involve only 
vocationally-oriented students and a negative stigma often develops 
around the concept of work study. The opportunity to allow students to 
work in volunteer or paid service activities during the day would have 
tremendous advantages and relevance to students by preparing them for 
the type of career changes that they can face in life. Self-confidence and 
responsiblity are not acquired vicariously; they require direct confronta- 
tion with real life situations, including the spectre of failure. Suggested 
service activities are endless; e.g. working in hospitals, homes for the 
elderly, fire and police departments, teacher assistants and tutors at all 
age levels, welfare and public health office, etc. The metropolitan area is 
a large classroom; it needs to be incorporated into our curriculum. Adult 
volunteer assistance in the Cohasset schools presently is providing well 
over $400,000. worth of time and help and we haven't scratched the 
human talent available in this community to improve the schools. 

There are many more opportunities for Cohasset to grow and I am looking 
forward to working with the Committee, faculty and residents for the better- 
ment of the Cohasset Schools in the years ahead. 

Respectfully submitted, 
James F. Gray

1972 REPORT OF COHASSET'S REPRESENTATIVE 

TO THE SOUTH SHORE REGIONAL 

SCHOOL DISTRICT COMMITTEE 

The Vocational Technical High School continues to be one of Cohasset's 
hidden assets. Presently only 12 Cohasset residents attend the school, which 
has a total enrolment of 336. From my observations, student morale is high 
and there is general satisfaction with the educational efforts of the staff by 
parents, graduates and employers of graduates from the eleven courses. 

Both formally and informally I have met with administrators of the 
Cohasset schools to seek ways to inform Cohasset students and parents of the 
advantages of attending '*Vo-Tech". A student at "Vo-Tech" can follow a 
program that will permit him to enter a college with technical skills that will 
enable him to provide better self-support than the average student from a 
regular high school. 

In order to provide programs and facilities of even broader use to the 
region, the Committee engaged the Eudcational Consultants Council, Inc. of 
Weymouth. Although their report is lengthy with statistical evidence, in es- 
sence it recommended expansion to 800, including at least 200 girls with up to 
14 new areas of vocational education. During 1972 the Committee will study 
and commence to inform the residence of the region of the details of the 
proposed imrovements to the school. 

The highlight of the year was the granting of a 10 year scholastic accredita- 
tion from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. This was 
achieved after a team of vocational teachers from throughout New England 
thoroughly inspected our curriculum, personnel and plant facilities. One ma- 
jor criticism was the offering of too many programs without sufficient space 
for safety and efficiency. 

As applications for attendance exceeded available openings, the Com- 
mittee in 1971 limited applications to residents of the towns in the region. 
This year each town was given a quota based on the original capital cost ap- 
portionment agreement of 1960. Cohasset's quota of 1 1.2% is now being fill- 
ed from other member towns. With a greater rate of population growth in 
four of the member towns, it will be difficult to maintain this favorable quota 
for Cohasset without more students from Cohasset. An indication of the 
value of vocational education is the tuition rate of $1,760 for non-residents. 

There were no Cohasset students amont the 49 graduates in 1972. 

In closing, on behalf of the town, I wish to thank my predecessor, John A. 
Geary, for nearly 8 years of faithful service to the region.

REPORT OF THE WIRE DEPARTMENT 

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen 
and Citizens of Cohasset: 

I heereby submit my report of the Wire Department for the year ending 
December 31, 1972. 

The work load of this department has increased over the past years due 
mostly to the expansion of the school system, plus increased work in other 
departments. We also have our regular duties, such as the maintenance and 
repairs of the Fire Alarm system which is growing each year. We noW have 
over one hundred Fire Alarm boxes, both street and master type. The work 
involved in keeping the Fire Alarm System in good working order takes very 
much of our time. Our work on Police signals has increased and will continue 
to do so. Wiring inspections have been more numerous due to the increased 
population of the town. Fees for wiring permits were increased this year ad- 
ding more revenue to the town. 

I feel that the money this department saves the town, doing all electrical 
repairs and new installations for all departments is a saving worth thinking 
about. New rules and regulations on safety requirements by the State 
Building Department has added more work for thii» department, especially in 
the school system. 

I might add that I am retiring as Superintendent of the Wire Department 
as of February 28, 1973. I have been very happy with my job over the years, 
and have tried to do the job to the best of my ability. I wish to extend my 
thanks to all departments for their cooperation and to the Board of 
Selectmen, Advisory and Personnel Board, and to all individuals who have 
helped my in my work, especially my assistant, Steven Wigmore.

During the year 1972 the routine maintenance of all vehicles was carried 
out. Repairs such as spark plugs, points and so forth were made, as well as 
lubrication and oil changes. Tires, batteries were replaced as needed. Repairs 
were made to the springs and spring shackles of Engine 1 as well as grinding 
and facing of the valves. 

The Town Meeting of 1972 authorized the replacement of Engine 4, a 1953 
500 GPM pump. This will be replaced by a 1,000 GPM pumper with a 500 
gallon water tank and a fully compartmented body. Delivery of this unit is ex- 
pected about August 1, 1973. 

Replacement of pumping engines in the future will have to be guided by 
what action is taken toward replacement of the existing sub-stations at 
Beechwood and North Cohasset. The structual features of these two 
buildings prevents replacement and relocation of apparatus. 



STATIONS and EQUIPMENT 



^H The policy of maintaining the tools and appliances of the department was 



129 



loaded on the apparatus was changed periodically. Both of these procedures 
aid in extending the life and reliability of the fire hose. 

The General Court amended Chapter 148, Section 51 A which states the 
requirements for self-contained breathing apparatus carried on fire ap- 
paratus. This change in the law requires the addition of five units to those 
presently in service. Provision has been made in the department budget to 
meet this obligation. 

The Post Office at North Cohasset closed during the year 1972 and the fire 
department was authorized to use the space they abandoned. This makes the 
quarters much more pleasant than those which the department used for many 
years. 

Regardless of this change, the stations at Beechwood and North Cohasset 
are poorly located geographically for good response of fire apparatus to the 
entire town. An article has been submitted for consideration at the 1973 
Town Meeting which in my opinion will meet the current and future needs of 
the fire department . . in a practical and economical manner. 

SUMMARY of ALARMS and EMERGENCY CALLS 

AUDIBLE ALARMS 99 

STILL ALARMS 191 

290 

This summary is broken down into the following classifications: 

Smoke and Gas Investigations involving structures 48 

Electrical -.12 

Automobile, truck, motorcycles gasoline powered equipment 20 

False alarms, hoax calls and bomb scares 32 

Broken gas mains 5 

Automobile, truck and motorcycle accidents 7 

Aid to persons, first aid and resuscitation, rescue of persons 

from water and trench cave-ins 67 

Building fires 32 

Sprinkler alarms, for fire and system failure 2 

Rubbish, incinerator and dump fires 12 

Brush, grass and woods fires 17 

Miscellaneous alarms 14 

Mutual Aid to Scituate 6 

Hull 12 

Hingham 4 

Multiple Alarms 2 



130 



The number of false alarms, bomb scares and hoax calls has reduced con- 
siderably from last years total of forty-nine. This number is still far too many 
and should be of major concern to all citizens. The number of man hours in- 
volved in these calls and the fact that much apparatus is out of service for 
lengthy periods effects every member of this community . . the resulting delay 
and lack of manpower could result in disaster. The cooperation of all citizens 
is required in assisting the fire and police departments if the persons involved 
are to be apprehended. 

The number of brush, grass and woods fires is down considerably from last 
year .. 61 for 1971 aainst 17 for 1972. There are two factors involved here; 
the first being that the past year was the wettest on record in recent years; 
secondly, is the effects of the "Regulations for the Control of Air Pollution in 
Metropolitan Boston" have been in existance only two years. The first year 
was quite dry . . the second year was very wet . . at least one more year is re- 
quired to establish some kind of an average effect on outside fires. 

RECOMMENDATIONS 

The following is a list of recommendations that would aid the fire depart- 
ment in doing a more complete job in the areas of fire suppression and fire 
prevention. 

1 . Replacement of the Beechwood and North Cohasset Fire Stations into a 
more centrally located, modern facility. This would increase the speed of 
response of apparatus to all sections of the town, and allow for a more 
concentrated attack on each fire. 

2. Add and amend the building code to include a requirement for installa- 
tion of home fire alarm and detection systems. 

3. The addition of at least six permanent firefighters to the department to 
provide adequate manning of the apparatus. Apparatus responding to an 
emergency with one man, the operator, is far from adequate manpower. 

4. The addition to the department of a small four wheel drive vehicle. Adap- 
table to brush and woods fires as well as general service. 

CONCLUSION 

In conclusion I would like to extend the thanks of this department to the 
citizens of Cohasset, the Board of Selectmen, the heads and members of all 
town departments and boards. 

To the Officers, Firefighters and Call Firefighters of this department I 
would like to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation for performance of 

131 



their assigned duties in a cooperative and diligent manner.

The role of the public health is the protection of health and the promotion 
of human comfort and the well-being through control of man's environment. 
The population increase and the diversity of human activities which have ac- 
companied that increase have intensified environmental control difficulties in 
those areas. The environmental and human problems during the decade have 
generated new laws and new concepts of basic health services, which have 
been taken as granted and were able to be postponed but are now mandatory. 
First of all we must operate our disposal area as a Sanitary Landfill opera- 
tion. One of the provisions of Section 150A, Chapter 111, of the General 
Laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts states: "No Sanitary Landfiill 
facility shall be hereafter constructed or operated unless the proposed use and 
the plans and design data therefore have been approved by the State Depart- 
ment of Public Health". Therefore, in compliance with the above law, the 
Board of Health must now ask for an increase in the budget for the cost of the 
required engineering services and for the site preparation. The engineering 
services will clear up some of the misconceptions of the longevity, the need of 
control, expenditures and the required manpower of the disposal area.

preciation to Mr. Bosco and the members of the Board of Health for their 
cooperation this past year. We are anxious to continue our work of main- 
taining and improving the quality of the health of the people of Cohasset. We 
are also considering ways to expand our services to those in need of more 
health supervision, such as the elderly. 



135 



Attendance at Well Child Conference has not fallen off despite the declin- 
ing birth rate in town. We attribute this to the excellent care provided by the 
pediatrician, Dr. Marsha McCrae, and to increased publicity about the 
monthy clinics. 

Finally, it should be noted that the low number of cummunicable diseases 
reported is not accurate, rather it indicates only those cases reported to the 
local and state Board of Health by the area physicians. We should like to en- 
courage local doctors and individual people to report communicable diseases 
to the Board of Health or the Social Service League so that proper followup 
and referral may be done as indicated.
